Trainer Suspended at Aqueduct
Trainer Michael J. Laudano has been suspended and denied access to the Aqueduct grounds for 45 days after Heptaminol, a cardiac stimulant, was found in one of his horses. The suspension runs through April 11.
Luv To Mombo Jumbo, a horse Laudano saddled for the second race on Jan. 7, tested positive. A postrace sample of the horse’s urine disclosed the presence of the prohibited substance.
Luv To Mombo Jumbo, who finished second, was disqualified and unplaced as a result of the discovery.
